VALE STRONG DEBORAH WALSH
SADLY, last week Deborah Walsh lost her battle with cancer, leaving behind her husband Gary Gray, the former Member for Brand, and their three sons.
Deb was a strong and determined woman who supported Gary as he served our local community in the federal parliament.
Right until the end Deb fought for equality, and only last month was at the marriage equality rally on the Rockingham foreshore.
Deb will be missed by her family and friends, and I extend my sincere condolences to them all at this sad time. MADELEINE KING MP Federal Member for Brand that candidates were at war with each other but how many times have we seen this at all levels of politics.
Additionally, you just have to watch the Federal ‘Parliamentary Question Time’, which sets a very poor example for young and old alike, the electorate being sick and tired of such behaviour from our elected representatives.
Any correspondence or verbal stoushes should stick to facts and refrain from fiction, which unfortunately is not the case when people have strong and differing views.
As a past councillor, the best advice I could give to anyone contemplating community service is that if you have a weak disposition or can’t stand the heat, you should reconsider your decision.
